The Great Emulator Coverage Thread

Recommended Posts

The aim of this thread is to test and confirm/fix coverage for the LaunchBox and Big Box startup and pause screens, and possibly to confirm what emulators should be added to the default emulator settings list in LaunchBox. Behold:

Tested over two days frequently changing games and going in and out of pause screen multiple times in each game and then testing each game several times. 

Pause Screens:

Model 3 (SuperModel) - worked well (no issues).

Model 2 - the more times I went in and out of pause I would get black screen or frozen image, but still heard audio. 

CXBX-Reloaded - working well (No issues).

Xenia - working well (no issues).

ePSXe - working well (no issues).

 

Startup Screens:

Model 3 (SuperModel) - worked well (no issues).

Model 2 - worked well (no issues).

CXBX-Reloaded - worked well (no issues).

Xenia - worked well (no issues).

ePSXe - worked well (no issues).

Thank you Retro. Per Model 3, do you mean Supermodel? Did you test the startup screens for those as well?

Yes to both. 

I did not mention Startups since those have worked fine for me the last few betas. I guess it would have helped the list to confirm. I edited the original post.

Built in settings mean no configuration just standard right?

Emulator                                  Platforms         Built-In Settings    Startup Screen Status    Pause Screen Status

Hi @Jason Carr can you please add extra columns for each setting within Game Startup. This thread is a good idea to compile working startup settings for each platform too. Also would be better to have a comments or more columns for emulator settings.

This would then be the ultimate thread for seamless startup integration.

Altirra

Various Atari 8-bit Yes Working Working

Seems to be working fine with Altirra with its default settings, but I've only tried a few games so far

Thank you guys; I've updated the table with everyone's testing results.

Actually it means whether or not LaunchBox has the emulator pre-configured via the drop down list in Add/Edit Emulator.

I'd rather keep this more simple; I'm not looking to create an end-all list of emulators, though I'm sure it could be adapted in another thread. Startup settings can vary based on the emulator's configuration, so while there are usually good default settings, they're not always guaranteed.

We do have some conflicting feedback on the Cemu startup screens; I've had at least one person tell me that they weren't working. It was probably a settings issue though I'm guessing. Can anyone else test Cemu?

Just tested here with Cemu 1.15.4b, Startup/Shutdown screens and Pause screens working just fine.

That is what I am wondering. I use basically the stock settings in Cemu. Except for maybe a couple minor game recommendations. I only have about 10 games so...

I just tested 3 Cemu builds and all seem to have no issues with Startups or Pause (versions 1.15.2, 1.15.4b, and 1.15.5c).

Awesome, thanks guys. Updated the table. Trying to get confirmations from three different people for each one before we go ahead and call it official.

Visual Pinball X    Startup Screen - Good      Pause Screen - Pause is good. But when you un-pause, it goes to VPX's editor window.  Press Alt+Tab (once to get back to the table's window [titled "Visual Pinball Player"]), it will pause/un-pause without issues until you exit and a new table is loaded.

Pinball FX2   Startup Screen - Good      Pause Screen - Pause is good. But when you un-pause, it goes to FX2's menu (paused).  Not that big of an issue.

Future Pinball   Startup Screen - Good      Pause Screen - Does not work. (nothing happens)

Dolphin   another confirmation that all's good.

Here's a new one, CPCE, an excellent Amstrad CPC emulator and a familiar Commodore 64 emulator

CPCE - Amstrad CPC - Startup screens WORKING, Pause screens WORKING

Hoxs64 - Commodore 64 - Startup screens WORKING, Pause screens BROKEN

Note: When pausing with Hoxs64, everything freezes and I have to CTRL+ALT+DEL (or similar action) to exit
